On the 9th of July 2012, a one day workshop was held by the CCCS Mission Office in collaboration with the Council for World Mission (CWstudents2M). The workshop’s primary goal was to educate and to provide a much needed awareness for young people of the dangers and the negative social implications that are brought about by alcohol and drug abuse.

The Workshop was attended by 8 young members from each respective CCCS collegstudents7e namely, Tuasivi (TSC), Leulumoega Fou (LFC), Nu’uausala (NSC), Maluafou (MFC), Papauta (PGC) and Congregational Senior College (CSC). A highlight of the workshop was the fact that participants were not just students of the CCCS faith, but from different denominations. This is something that is to be applauded for the flexibility that the CCCS puts on prioritising education no matter what denomination a student belongs to. This was shared by participants through personal experiences to motivate other students to stay off alcohol and drugs.
